Napoli in Polizzi Generosa

Postby ctaravella » 12 Oct 2010, 21:11

I have Salvadore Napoli (b. abt 1815, d. bef 1876)
married to Caterina Casio (b. abt 1826, d. aft 1877)
Children:
Maddalena Maria Napoli b. 1849 d. 1850
Maria b. 1851 d. 1856
Gesuelda b. 1852 d. 1853
Concetta b. 1853 d. 1940 Campofelice di Rocella, married to Rosario Taravella on 5 Oct 1877 in Polizzi.
Gandolfa b. 1857 d. unk
I can't find the 1877 allegati for Polizzi on the FHL index. I tried the one that would follow to no avail. Living Taravella family in Campofelice told me that Concetta was from Calabria. Not so, but possibly Salvadore the father. Napoli doesn't seem to be a Polizzi name. I've gathered the above information from the index online. Any ideas?

Finding the film that contains the allegati for the 1877 marriage to get the birth documents for Salvadore Napoli and Caterina Cascio.

There is no allegati film for the year 1877 for the town.

To get Caterina's birth record, if she was born around 1826, you can try the birth record films as follows:

Nascite 1825-1830 FHL INTL Film 2035481

or

Nascite 1820-1825 FHL INTL Film 2035480

There are no microfilms earlier than 1820 for civil birth records, so there would not be any civil birth records for 1815 for Salvadore.


Nascite 1909-1910 Matrimoni, pubblicazioni 1862-1899 FHL INTL Film 2013371

This film would have marriages and publications for the marriages from 1862 to 1899, so your 1877 marriage document should be on this roll of microfilm. You won't get the birth records with these. However, in some towns, the information may be handwritten into the body of the marriage record. I found this to be the case with my one Sicilian town in Agrigento Province which has the birth dates of the bride and groom written in the body of their marriage record. I have also had towns in southern Italy and Sicily where death info for parents or grandparents is written in the body of the marriage record, even though there weren't separate records for these events.

You will have to try to get baptism records for the period of time earlier than when the state civil records started in 1820. There are no church records on microfilm. You'll have to write to the local parish there:

Parrocchia Maria SS Assunta
VIA ROMA
90028 Polizzi Generosa (PA)
Italia

tel: 0921 926360

to help you write a letter in Italian, you can refer to the following website:

You normally have to send a donation to a parish.
